Bardstown Day Trip

Saturday was an absolutely gorgeous day! We had planned our annual trek to Bardstown, KY to go to the antique show at the high school. We stopped at Hardees in Jeffersonville and munched on ham and sausage biscuits and then hit the road. Stopped at three yard sales on the way and then hit the antique show! It was nice as usual and we found a few goodies!

I found some fun stuff for my etsy shop and the all time find was Katie the Carrot (one of Mr. Potato Head's friends) that I had been looking for! I needed this exact version for one empty spot I had next to the two others in the series! Woo Hoo! Found it!

I also got a sweet little box of crayons for my collection, an Annalee character from 1991 (25 cents at the Relay for Life yard sale) and 5 Christmas stockings filled with goodies, never having been opened! I really want to keep all five but one or two may end up in my etsy shop next Christmas! Children's books of course, a fantastic Montgomery Ward catalog from 1923 in incredible condition and a little gift for Tim.

After we left the show, we headed downtown and ate lunch at the drug store soda fountain! They had Easter merchandise half price and mom treated me to a few little foil wrapped bunnies for my Easter tree! They are adorable! We walked around downtown a bit, hit a couple of antique stores and the Peddler's Mart and finished the day up with ice cream from Baskin Robbins.

All in all, a fabulous day with the Three Musketeers!

That Hurst Drug store was my Dad's first job out of pharmacy school back in the very early 50's! All of Bob's nieces and nephews (literally ALL) have worked in that drug store through their high school years.
I am going to have to make it out to that high school sale....looks like my type of finds.
